Program Description

Event Details

Calling all pizza lovers! What if you have a pizza craving, but no pizza? Natural Grocers has ideas to support your pizza habit. Let's join forces and make pizza and pizza-like snacks! By definition pizza is made of dough, tomato sauce, cheese, and toppings. Come play in the kitchen with us as we create pizza snacks that go beyond your standard pizza. 

If you'd like, gather some ingredients before the program:

  • pepperoni, ham slices, or ground sausage
  • olives or banana peppers
  • block of cheese, like mozzarella, cheddar, provolone, or shredded cheese
  • spices like Italian seasoning, dried oregano, garlic powder, or onion powder
  • pizza sauce
  • zucchini
  • mushrooms
  • red onion
  • crackers, plain, or sundried tomato
  • premade pizza crust

While all of these ingredients are optional, if you'd like to follow along, you'll need at least pizza sauce, one of the vegetables, and cheese to make your pizza. 

No recipe needed, we will create from scratch!

*Please note that cooking may require the use of kitchen tools such as a knife and a hot stove top or oven. 

There will be a drawing for five gift cards to use at Natural Grocers!

A Zoom link and password to access the program will be emailed once registration is reviewed by staff.

Note: This program will be recorded.
